Kids On Summer Break Are Spending Time Reading To Adoptable Dogs

by Allyson Souza
Ally is a born-and-bred Jersey Girl who studied English and Journalism at Rutgers University. In her free time, she spends too much money on food, continues the endless search for her next favorite book, and fails to use her gym membership on a daily basis. She comes from a huge, crazy family that sells Fish & Chips for a living and she wouldn’t have it any other way.

Anyone who’s ever attended school is no stranger to the summer reading list. It’s the constant thorn in most kids’ side throughout their vacation as they do their absolute best to avoid reading a single page of their assigned books.

Personally, I was all about summer reading. I didn’t mind it one bit — something my brothers just never quite understood.

It’s understandable that the majority of kids just aren’t into doing schoolwork over the summer break. It’s supposed to be a time of complete relaxation. Even teachers can’t wait for that final bell to ring on the last day of the school year. It’s so exciting that they feel like dancing, and some of them do. Just check out these teachers using the hallway as their very own dance floor.

They’re too funny!

But for the kids like me, who looked forward to cracking open a new book and diving in, there are ways to make sure books are available to kids who may not be able to afford them. Books on Bikes is a wonderful program that strives to do just this.

And now, there’s an incredible way to turn summer reading into the most fun thing you do all summer. “How?” you might ask. Just add puppies.

The Bulverde Area Humane Society, located in Texas, has invited kids to bring their summer reading straight to the kennel, so that dogs up for adoption are able to spend time with people. It’s a win-win situation!
